Meet Stan, this is Janet’s Muppet she made while we were in NYC. She made this Muppet at a toy shop called “FAO Schwarz”, which is the only place in the world you can do this thing. Janet was in her absolute glee while she picked out the body colour, eyes, nose, hair, and outfit. I think she did a lovely job.

This is Fritz the Boozer. He’s a gnome with a bottle of brandy that my Nan bought when she worked at Birks. He’s happy little elf, wandering through a drunken mist.

New theme is another camera setting. We are shooting at an F-stop of 4.0 all week. This is a common garden spider and the wonderful web she has woven.

Ever try to lap up water like a dog but fail miserably and wonder just how the hell they do it? Well, it looks like this, curling the bottom of their tongue to make a scoop maybe???

I decided to try my hand a water droplet photography today. I spent the better part of the morning researching the area, setting up the shot and fooling around with various camera settings. I ended up using various lights, water colours, milk, and a multitude of camera settings. I took about 200 photos, and I found a hard time picking a favourite, so I decided to post a bunch of them.

I had a really fun time setting this all up, every droplet produces something different, and it was fun to play around with it all.

Jeff was nominated for the ice bucket challenge recently and decided to perform the task today. I was fortunate enough to be there with my camera and snap a few pictures. Jeff had the perfect pour over his head for me to capture this photo, really happy with how this turned out.

St. John’s Harbour is a dandy sheltered body of water, with just one narrow entry point and high hills on all sides protecting somewhat from the weather. It’s too bad we’ve destroyed it. How long would it take nature to reclaim the water?

Not totally happy with this drop, but the lighting on the ripples is kinda cool.

Was trying to think of fountains in town today, and the only one that came to mind was Bowring Park. Wet ol day again, but it didn’t stop a bridal party from taking some pictures in the background.

There’s been no end to the rain, drizzle, and fog since the Regretta. Fogust has been a miserable old month, here’s a rushed photo of the drizzle, and rain from my patio with the doors open while some dude was smoking a j under the patio. I think the flash scared the shit out of him.
